Lucent Technologies Inc, once a self-styled rival to Sun Microsystems Inc and its Java operating system (CI No 2,854), has now signed three agreements with the company to ensure that all Java-enabled applications also run on devices and networks that use Lucent’s Inferno network operating system. Lucent says it will license Java technolgies from Sun to incorporate into Inferno. It will also join Sun in defining its PersonalJava and EmbeddedJava application programming interfaces, revealed by Sun at the conference, for creating applications to run on phones, pagers, hand-held computers, printers, copiers and industrial controllers. Sun, in turn, has become a member of Lucent’s Inferno Partners Program and will help to take the market for Java-enabled products to Inferno customers. Inferno release 1.0, announced last month, now supports Java. Evaluation copies are available at Lucent has also announced new telephony software for Java, adding Internet integration to its PassageWay Telephony Services, a TSAPI Telephony Services Application Programmer Interface-compliant tool that integrates telephony systems with Novell and Windows NT networks.
